Leprechauns๐Ÿ€Short People๐Ÿค— and Comfort Zones

Here are a few comical pics for your enjoyment on this fine Saturday–with a hint of teensy-weensy pocket-sized chuckles! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

That made me think for a moment of the wee little green people of Ireland! (Spoken with an Irish accent in my head) Who knows, as short as I am, I may be a distant descendant of one! ๐Ÿ€๐Ÿ„๐Ÿ€๐Ÿ„๐Ÿ€

Do you ever find yourself falling a tad “short” some days? Personally, I find myself falling a tad short EVERY single day of the week! ๐Ÿ˜‚ At the towering height of 4’11,” I’m in this predicament more often than not!๐Ÿคทโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿคช๐Ÿคฃ

Who else can say they can perch off the edge of a sheet of notebook paper and dangle their legs over but me?!! If you’ve been around any length of days, you may have heard that ancient song sung by Randy Newman called Short People–about us shortcakes. The lyrics still crack me up to this day!๐Ÿ˜‚ Especially the part about nasty little feet! ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ˜ฑ

Furthermore, I could not count the many times through the years that someone has felt the need to sing me a few lines. ๐Ÿคฆโ€โ™€๏ธ ๐Ÿ˜‚

๐ŸŽถThey got little baby legs
And they stand so low
You got to pick ’em up
Just to say hello๐ŸŽต

Me????

Still and all, its ok finding ourselves falling a tiny bit short in the physical sense of things, yet it’s in our spiritual awareness that we find that falling short doesn’t feel so good at all! Nope! Not at all!

Have you ever found yourself praying this kind of prayer before?

๐Ÿ™„ Hey it’s me again, Lord!…..Hello?…..I’m down here…….(waves ๐Ÿ‘‹ hand) Can you see me? I know I’m a little on the short side….but, well, I know I just called you a few minutes ago….But….I’m….well….like… knocking again….Just in case you got busy and forgot….๐Ÿ’๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ Maybe you just couldn’t hear me the first time?…..Is this mike on?……I will just turn the volume up a little….

๐Ÿ—ฃ๐Ÿ—ฃ๐Ÿ—ฃTHINGS ARE A LITTLE SHORT DOWN HERE!!!….๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ‘€โ˜น๏ธ

Can you hear me a little bit better now?

…like my…my…money…the patience is also running a fraction thin here….and, by the way, did I mention yet….

I want out of this trial!!!! ๐Ÿ˜ซ๐Ÿ˜ฉ๐Ÿ”ฅ

I was doing just fine kicked back in my “Comfort Zone” with this warm fuzzy, comfy blanket!” I just wanted to sit here and rest awhile. You know I’m tired, Lord. And I don’t LIKE what’s happening to me right now AT ALL!!!! ๐Ÿฅบ๐Ÿ˜ญโ˜น๏ธ…..(*silence….a pin drops…)…….Well, I guess I will say Amen for now Lord!

Oh, the sweet remembrance of that safe “Comfort Zone!” And the Whoosh!โ˜€๏ธ๐Ÿ’จ๐ŸŒงโ›ˆ๐Ÿ’ง๐Ÿ’ฆโ˜”๏ธ๐Ÿ’ฅ๐Ÿ’ฅ๐Ÿ’ซโšก๏ธโšก๏ธโ˜„๏ธ๐ŸŒช ๐ŸŒŠ of the fiery dart sailing through the air right before it meets its target. ๐ŸŽฏ๐Ÿ’ฃ๐Ÿงจ๐Ÿ’˜ Knocked me clean right out of my comfy chair! Boy did that arrow hurt when it shot me straight to the heart!๐Ÿ’˜

How did this happen? I should have seen it coming right?

Is this you today friend?

โ€œWe have heard with our ears…what work thou didst in their days, in the times of old. How thou didst drive out the heathen with thy hand…how thou didst afflict the people, and cast them out. For they got not the land in possession by their own sword, neither did their own arm save them: but thy right hand, and thine arm, and the light of thy countenance, because thou hadst a favour unto them.

Through thee will we push down our enemies: through thy name will we tread them under that rise up against us. For I will not trust in my bow, neither shall my sword save me. But thou hast saved us from our enemies, and hast put them to shame that hated us.

My confusion is continually before me, and the shame of my face hath covered me,

All this is come upon us; yet have we not forgotten thee…Our heart is not turned back, neither have our steps declined from thy way; Though thou hast sore broken us in the place of dragons, and covered us with the shadow of death.

Awake, why sleepest thou, O Lord? arise, cast us not off for ever. Wherefore hidest thou thy face, and forgettest our affliction and our oppression? For our soul is bowed down to the dust…Arise for our help, and redeem us for thy mercies’ sake.โ€

โ€ญโ€ญPsalmsโ€ฌ โ€ญ44:1-3, 5-7, 15, 17-19, 23-26โ€ฌ โ€ญKJVโ€ฌโ€ฌ

Wait on the Lord today. He WILL arise! He will take care of that situation! He is your help and your shield. Tell your heart to rejoice, because you have trusted in his Holy name. You will get the victory! His mercy will be upon you my friend, because you have put your hope in Him! He loves you way too much to leave you in that comfort zone!

  1. That’s funny. I’m 6’1″ and I can’t tell you how many times short people have asked me to get things for them off the upper shelves at the store.๐Ÿ˜‚ It never bothers me, so don’t be afraid to ask us tall guys for help. Same thing happens to me on airplanes. I have huffed a lot of luggage for people out of the overhead bins.๐Ÿ˜‚ God bless!

  2. Hilariously, funny post! Today, I saw a short lady at Aldiโ€™s climbing into one of the upright refrigerators and standing on the ledge of the bottom shelf to reach the top shelf! A girlโ€™s gotta do what a girlโ€™s gotta do to get the job done๐Ÿ˜‚

  3. Yeah, I can relate to being short… I’m 5’1…. I hate being short….๐Ÿ˜ญ

    It was all funny and then you took a Spiritual side to this post and read me like a book….

    I want out of this trial! I’m done. I can’t take the fighting anymore. I’m at the end of my rope.

    Friday there was another big fight in my family and I was the cause… yet again… I can’t do anything but fail…. I spent the night at one of my friends house Friday night and I broke down and just cried. I couldn’t handle the pain anymore I had to cry. Everyone was asleep so it make it better. Lol. But I’m ready for church today. I have so much on me right now I can’t walk another step… that’s why I’m ready for church! I need my Jesus!!

  4. Oh V, Iโ€™m so sorry you are going through all this!! It seems the enemy is using our own families to discourage and hurt us in these last days at times! When we think we canโ€™t go on, we steal away and PRAY! A lot of times I have learned if I just โ€˜donโ€™t say a wordโ€™, let them do their ranting and then just โ€˜walk awayโ€™ afterwards and go pray somewhere. The Lord fights the battle for me. Sometimes all we can do is go CRY somewhere because sandpaper people can be terribly cruel and hurtful. Itโ€™s so important to STAY POSITIVE! Speak and PRAY positive SCRIPTURES to combat that enemy. People or family are not the enemy. We are fighting principalities and rulers of darkness. Cast those concerns on God! He really is listening. Even when we donโ€™t hear from Him at times, there is a purpose to it all. I will pray for you right now! And continue to. Have church in the morning girl!!! Donโ€™t worry what anyone else thinks. YOU set the example for your Youth. If you are the only one worshipping, do it! Throw those hands up and worship. These are the ways we fight our battles! Much love Baby Girl! ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ
